That British show that everyone loves, Downton Abbey, may be getting a prequel. According to Vulture, series creator Julian Fellowes divulged at a recent BAFTA event that he does "have an idea of doing a prequel of the courtship between Robert and Cora." 

"Cora was in love with him before they married but as we know he only fell in love with her about a year after they married," Fellowes said. "He married her purely for the money. I think that is something he came to feel quite guilty about."

The third season of Downton Abbey doesn't premiere in the U.S. until January, but it's already airing in the U.K., so Internet-savvy masses are probably watching it right now.
